' What we play is life '      

Louis Armstrong

Being a teenager I lost both of my parents within a short period of time. Dealing with this including intense experiences caused by sickness and violence at home amongst others made it painfully clear I had to find out what life was worth living for, just for me.

My inner quest was a process of falling and rising. Starting my college days I found it hard to fully enjoy the pleasure and freedom of a scholar, while deeling with anorexia and depression. Working as a personal injury lawyer for a few years turned out to be an important lesson for me too. Truly determined to fight for the rights of my clients, I ran into my own boundaries and found myself at home with a burnout.

Opening myself for the support of my family, friends, and therapists in challenging times helped me to stay truthful to myself, to my own natural flow of life. In accordance with this flow I decided to let go of my beloved partner, travelled through India and started an new intensive study as therapist. All of this made me stronger and yet softer towards myself at the same time. It clearified and deepened the contact I truly want to have with myself and others.

Up to today I find an essential expression in Yoga, meditation and mindfulness. It reminds me of the true power I can feel within my whole body.
